Isle of Wight event 'promises to be action-packed'

Tourists heading out on their Isle of Wight holidays this weekend have been advised to head to an island event which has been said to promise an action-packed occasion.

The Isle of Wight County Press reports that V-Bay festival gets underway today (October 21st 2010) in Ventnor.

Island-based band The Bees get the party started with a gig at the Winter Gardens tonight, with the venue then hosting a V-Bay party tomorrow evening.

One of the events taking place this weekend those on Isle of Wight holidays were told to head to is a tug-of-war contest which will be taking place on Ventnor's beach on Sunday (October 23rd).

"Children's events include storytelling, mask making and face painting as well as a traditional Punch and Judy show by Randini and a mini round-the-island boat race at the Esplanade paddling pool," added the newspaper.

Ventnor is a popular destination for tourists on Isle of Wight holidays as it gets more sun than most of the island.
